Brian Wilson returns to The Beach Boys?

on June 21, 2010, 10:10am

Sometimes news seems too good to be true. Take this with a grain of salt, but according to the Las Vegas Sun, Brian Wilson plans to reunite with his old pals of The Beach Boys in what’s being billed as “celebration concerts”, which mark the 50th anniversary of the band’s inception. Wilson’s cousin, frontman Mike Love, who’s continued on with the group’s name for years (despite being the only remaining original member), had a lot to say on the matter.

“We began in the fall of 1961, and our first tour was in 1962, and it’s been nonstop since then,” Love tells the paper. “Now we’re gearing up for the 50th anniversary, and Brian Wilson, who has been working on some unfinished Gershwin music project, will rejoin us. I’m sad that Carl Wilson passed away 11, 12 years ago from the same lung cancer problem that claimed the life of George Harrison. That was not a fun time for us. But I am happy that now my son Christian is in the group. Yes, the lineup has changed over the years, but it’s been pretty consistent the past several years.”

The Beach Boys currently have a ton of summer tour dates scheduled across North America. No word, however, on when and where these Wilson-involved dates will be, but we’ll keep you updated.
